About Anumara
Yurpiya is painting a place called Anumara, which is a place near Irrunytju (Wingellina) in WA. This is Yurpiya's family's country. Anumara is also the name for a kind of caterpillar and Anumara is the tjukurpa (dreaming)place for this caterpillar. This caterpillar lives in the grass and can be eaten if the grass it eats are removed. The place shares the same colours of the caterpillar - brown, yellow and pale green. Keeping this place safe will ensure that the caterpillars multiply.
